  1. Reblogged this on Caribbean & Atlantic Bibliographies and commented:
    Sepinwall makes me want to read “Rosalie.” I appreciate how she relates it to the Holocaust survival accounts. “Rosalie” should accompany me to the classroom.

    Another work that is also a scholarly incursion outside of academic writing is Rafe Blaufarb’s Inhuman traffick: the international struggle against the transatlantic slave trade: a graphic history.
